's giving the republicans all the ammunition they need to block president obama's second-term agenda. and you know what? he's going to regret it. so what does this mean? this means that activist groups are the only ones that can save the country when it comes to legislation because the activist groups are going to have to go out and get in these districts and in these states where senators are who are not doing the right thing and primary them. and let them know that they're not going to win the next election. do the unions of this country deserve what just happened tonight after as hard as they worked to get president obama and the democrats in the senate? give me a break. for more let's turn to larry cohen, president of the communication workers of america. larry, i'm stunned. your thoughts. your initial reaction to this vote tonight on the filibuster. >> initial reaction is one of incredible disappointment and anger, as you expressed it. but also as you just said, that 2 million of us, way beyond labor, the 2 million of us who have worked on this, have to keep working. we have to
been here at the white house since the beginning of president obama's first term. in fact, he helped him as he was coming in to the white house and their time together goes all the way back to when president obama was a senator-elect, when he was coming from being a state legislator in illinois to the senate. so all the way back to his time where he first came to washington. he also was a foreign policy adviser, ashleigh, to the former senate majority leader tom daschle. so he has quite a long credential when it comes to foreign policy, but also he'll obviously be dealing as well with domestic policy issues as chief of staff. >> so, brianna, i keep getting all these papers hitting my desk, one after another of announcements. ite like a flurry of announcements. who else is coming in and going out? >> reporter: a lot of folks are being promoted from within. some of them may not sound familiar, some of them will, but some are definitely going to be become more familiar to you. dan fifer, currently the communications director at the white house will be promoted as assistant to the presid

. >>> the second term shuffle continues today. president obama will announce changes to his senior staff in a little over two hours. denis mcdonough is replacing jack lew as the new white house chief of staff. tony blinkon will take over for mcdonough as the national security adviser. and jennifer palmieri will take over for pfeiffer as the white house communications director. did you catch all that? it's a lot of changes at the white house. rob knavers will become the deputy chief of staff. let's bring in my colleague, nbc news capitol hill correspondent, kelly o'donnell, former spokesman for the democratic campaign committee, and republican congressman from iowa, jim nussle. thank you, everyone, for coming on the program. doug, to you first. shake ups, nothing too unexpected here, denis mcdonough as chief of staff. what does this mean for the obama white house in the second term? these folks have been through the ringer a few times. not like dick morris type of changes. what does this mane for the obama white house? >> these are all people that the president trusts. they have been with
in north africa, while the obama administration was being a little bit reluctant in terms of providing the french the ability to get their troops into mali. have not really wanted to pay for anything there. in this era of drawdown, of getting out of iraq, of getting out of afghanistan, do you fear of heavy u.s. involvement, in more than just covert ways in north africa? >> well, i think it's important for us to have a sense of scale. we've been spending as much as $100 billion a year on the war in afghanistan. the sorts of dollars we're talking about for potentially supporting the french and mallian military operations are two orders of magnitude, three orders of magnitude smaller than that. we're talking about a few hundred million dollars. still a significant amount of money for taxpayers, but we are not talking about anything like the kind or scale of investment in either blood or treasure that we made in the wars in iraq and afghanistan. this is simply about providing logistics, intelligence, and refueling to a nato ally and to a regional ally. part of the hesitation on the part of

will be contrary to any big grand deals. i think president obama proved its first term that the epa used correctly has some muscle on these things and the courts now recognize that they can regulation emissions, and it's a moratorium now because of some of those decisions. new standards about emissions from cars, and anybody walking around the detroit auto show saw there is a whole new range of cars that are trying to hit those 2015 targets. but every expert you talk to here -- everybody you talk to says we need a price on carbon. that is going to be the biggest thing that help drive the cost up and the emissions down. >> jennifer: and that of course is not going to happen with this congress, and i would be surprised, frankly, james if the epa is going to be the means, good luck getting an epa head confirmed, right? >> that is definitely going to be a challenge, and with an outgoing epa head who has troubled a lot of concerns here -- >> >> jennifer: yeah especially with no filibuster reform. >> yeah. >> jennifer: it's a tough one. all right james i got to go but i rea

will obviously be a perpetual campaign by president obama in his second term goes on tonight it started with a perpetual attack on our second amendment rights. senator dianne feinstein kicking off this morning, rolling out new legislation and they would ban nearly 160 assault rifles and semi automatic weapons and magazines holding more than 10 rounds. nearly a dozen of those weapons on display at the news conference, including the so-called assault weapon used by the newtown, connecticut, shooter, atlanta. the senators placed the blame not on that young man with serious mental illness was left untreated, but rather on gun laws. >> weaken gun laws allow these mass killings to be carried out again and again. weapons designed originally for the military to kill large numbers of people are replicated for civil unions. lou: after four days of non-relativity from the president dispatched his vice president for a not so successful joe biden fireside chat made famous by fdr. not so successful because vice president biden undercut it with his own call for shotguns and more modest magazines. >> a
right now, the work that is being done in democratic politics right now, led by president obama at the start of his second term is this effort to turn what has been long-standing majority support for liberal policies into appreciation that those policies aren't just individual free-floating technocratically good ideas that we agree on, those policies come from a worldview and a problem-solving approach that is in fact the governing philosophy of this country. we're a liberal country. we are not a center-right country the way the right always wants to tell us. we are a country where liberal policies are widely popular and, frankly, at the national level we express that right now by mostly voting for democrats. by a lot. that's the portrait of the country that the president was painting this week in his second inaugural, in tying this list of what get described as liberal policies to fundamental centrist, widely acknowledged, basically universal american values. >> we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with
upon very early to help first term president obama. you've got to understand where he's coming from and his agenda and how he got voted in. liz: how hard is it to understand that businesses create jobs? >> not hard, but how hard is it to actually put the agenda ahead of the other agendas, probably difficult. but now the agenda is here. by the way, it transcends all classes. no such thing as classes in america. it is all about jobs for everyone. everyone at the bottom of the american pyramid aspires to get to the top. that has to stay intact in the remake of the american model. i think he understands that. but job creation and business partnership has to be part of the conversation. i see it very much part of the conversation right now. liz: your native country of australia has done quite well. but that's dependent very much on natural resources. >> absolutely. liz: where do you see australia going because a lot of our viewers love to invest in australia? >> and i'm thankful for that. i'm still a very proud australian. i go back and tell my countrymen please don't take the term lucky
when president obama started his term in office. so, those are the priorities of the american people. and does president obama have his eye on the ball? ng me now heidi harris, the host of the heidi harris show and if you look at the agenda items spelled out in the president's inaugural address because he's talking about gay rights and immigration reform and climate change, heidi, and the american people seem to be talking about something very different. >> they are, and it's interesting how he didn't spend any time at all on the economy, building bridges and roads, that's really not going to improve the economy and that's pretty much all he said about it in his speech. it shows that he's not listening to what the american people want. and doesn't surprise a lot of folks, his vision of america, we on the right believe, is very different from the vision of measured america that our founders had and seems he's trying to take us in a different direction. >> megyn: what did you make of it, leslie. and not lot said about economy or jobs and the deficit, i understand it needs attention, bu
, but that term ends this year and obama wants the senate to act this time. >> financial institutions have plenty of lobbyists looking out for their interests. the american people need richard to keep standing up for them. >> reporter: over the last year, cordray has put to rest many fears the c.f.p.b. would overreach. >> we approach this work with open minds, open ears and great determination. >> reporter: but republicans seem equally determined to block cordray. they want to change the c.f.p.b., replacing a single director with a board of commissioners. darren gersh, "n.b.r.," washington. >> susie: what really happened in the financial crisis, and what work still needs to be done, is the focus of a new book. "after the music stopped" is written by alan blinder, former vice chairman of the federal reserve, and now professor of economics at princeton. when i sat down with him today, i asked him if the financial system is still at risk, five years later. >> i think we are still at risk. i tell you what i think is the biggest one it is not in the details but in the very broad frame which is that th
speaker, john boehner of the house talking about president obama's second term agenda. listen to this. >> so we are expecting here over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt to annihilate the republican party. i do believe that is their vote. to just chop us into a dust bit of history. >> do you agree with the speaker some. >> i think he was citing a cbs news record. >> he said it. >> clearly president obama would like to outmaneuver the republicans and would like to find a way to make us -- >> annihilate the republican party and shove us into the dust bin of history? >> that's the language used by the cbs news -- >> that's the speaker, john boehner used that language. whether or not jane dickerson of cbs news used that is irrelevant. the speaker of the house is relevant. >> i think he was triggered by what dickerson said. if obama could figure out a way to reduce us to the level of the republican party, he would do it in a heartbeat. >> what are is the decision not to seek reelection in 2014. he's a conservative and a republican incumbent and he wa
's nomination to a full senate vote early next week. president obama has appointed former new york prosecutor mary jo white to head the securities and exchange commission and a second term rid appearing on thursday, obama urged the senate to grant her a speedy confirmation. >> i am confident she has experience and resolve to tackle these complex issues and protect the american people in a way that a smart and in a way that is fair. i expect the senate to confirm mary jo as soon as possible so she can get to work. >> mary jo white would be the first former prosecutor to head the sec, a critical position for the oversight of wall street. while supporters of bills for her nomination as tougher and financial regulation in the second term, she also brings the job, a resume, of defending top financial institutions as a white-collar defense attorney. her client list includes former bank of america head ken lewis, the board of morgan stanley, and the firm jpmorgan chase. in a statement, the consumer advocacy watchdog group public citizen expressed cautious optimism over her appointment, calling her "
, the presidential race, of course, we just inaugurated president obama for his second term. we've seen action shifts to the states. you have democratic governors making moves on this. andrew cuomo in new york is taking the lead. he could run for president. the vice president is not making it secret that he could be running for president as well so he's the front man on this major issue that the president will be talking about. so none of this is without politics in mind. the money does matter, the momentum on this matters when you're talking to different families affected by it. that's an issue they want to use for political gain. >> brown:. >> sreenivasan: what about the other measures? this is just the assault weapons ban but there seems to be more consensus on background checks. why not take that strategic approach and get as much as you can passed as soon as you can? i >> the white house says that's what they're trying to do. they want to work in tandem with republicans who are pushing mental health funding who can look at that issue but even the n.r.a. did a survey of its ownmens and they're sa

barack obama and the congressional caucus had an interesting dance in the first term. you can read about it said there was some tension between the white house and the congressional black caucus, and you decided you were going to go out any way in create your own jobs. you went out and create these jobs fares. at one point you could not get a meeting with a black president inside the white house. these are the facts. i am wondering what the relationship is going to be like now that you are the new chair. i was stunned by this. when you did raise your voices, often in tension with the white house, the black people in your district would go off on you, for giving the black president a hard time. i am just asking how this relationship is going to work in the second term, given that the black for are kept -- black poor are kept out. >> my perspective of this, i anticipate having a good relationship with the white house, but i will say the president's job is different from my job. the poorestm one of cities in america. i believe with any president you have to say what you believe, and if that

these pro forma sessions. but in terms of whether the obama administration will appeal this, that is still a big question mark. the justice department has not weighed in yet, martin. however, a lot of legal analysts believe that it is likely that they will appeal this decision, and that includes our own pete williams. so we'll have to see moving forward what happens. >> okay. we also hear, kristin, that the president and secretary of state, hillary clinton, are sitting down together for an interview today with "60 minutes." this comes after mrs. clinton met with the president away from cameras. these former opponents have certainly come a long way over the years, have they not? what do you hear about their relationship today? >> reporter: well, they have come a long way, and according to my sources here, they have a strong relationship, and they really share the same vision for how to move the country forward and also agree on a lot of issues, especially when it comes to foreign policy. i am told that they have a lot of trust in each other at this point in time. and interestingly, martin,
that he will be affected by this as well? >> yes and no, it's unclear. so yesterday president obama renominated mr. corddry for full term. and when de that two years ago, originally congress basically signaled the republicans in the senate signaled we are not going to confirm mr. corddry, so the president did this recess appointment. now it's unclear whether the republicans are going to allow its confirmation of corddry to go through. and you know, obama might have to really try to twist the arms of senate republicans. but that's not very easy. and he probably would not be able to do another recess appoint oment of corddry because according to this decision, it's not the end of session for congress. >> so could this tie the administration down for a long time? >> i think the effect of this decision is that it might really tie the hands of this president and perhaps a future president. president to make recess appointments except that one window between congresses. and it really greatly increases the po wore of the senate to-- in ways block, you know, block appointments to tell presi
